Dallas Stars Daily Links: Seguin, Benn Have Earned Some All-Star Fun, Says Ruff

The Central Division All-Star coach thinks the game will be good for Tyler and Jamie. Plus, a fan's guide to the All-Star merchandise, and a universe in which Loui Eriksson returns to Dallas and brings Zdeno Chara with him. If you'd just finished a really tough month on the job, which vacation would you choose: quiet downtime on the beach, or a boisterous party with a few dozen of your closest friends? As much fun as the NHL All-Star Game seems to be for many players, fans tend to worry about their favorites getting tired, stressed out or injured during a glorified exhibition game. Mike...

Is Ryan Spooner playing wing ahead of a Loui Eriksson trade?

The only thing that this accomplishes is loading up the top 6, at the expense of Matt Beleskey and Jimmy Hayes on the third line There seems to be an underlying question as to why the Bruins are playing Ryan Spooner on the wing with David Krejci and Loui Eriksson lately. Some are speculating that this could be preparing for life without Loui, which depending on the return for him, could very well be dumb. However, Darren Dreger was quoted as saying that the Bruins weren't currently looking to move the Swedish winger Dreger: "Not at that stage yet" where #Bruins would come to Eriksson about...

Brick calls the boys to talks some Bruins hockey. He gets into the Eriksson situation and how he sees it shaking out. He talks about how this is Eriksson's last real chance at big money deal and he's not going to mess that up. Brick also talks about the Bruins defense, what they need to do gong forward and the play of Zdeno Chara who has been effective but has clearly lost a step as he enters the latter part of his career. Andy also says the Bruins need to pick up their play on home ice if they're going to have any chance at success this season.

Reaping What You Sow: John Scott, Loui Eriksson, and the Pride of the NHL All-Star Game

For Stars fans, this is a complicated situation. For the NHL, it was an impossible one, but that's still no excuse for what's happened. So many people have written and written well about the John Scott fiasco, and with good reason.  It's fascinating, it's charged with emotion, and it's about as controversial a maneuver by the league--sorry, by Arizona, Nashville and Montreal--since the last lockout. For Dallas Stars fans, it's especially complicated: lt;brgt; Eriksson's loss in the summer of 2013 was by far the most painful part of the Seguin trade.  To watch him then get knocked out...
Stanley Cup of Chowder Jan 16, 2016


Loui Eriksson's potential free agency is looming large as one of the key decisions of Boston's upcoming offseason. Today, the Chowder staff debate what the Bruins should do. Here's the argument for keeping him. Loui Eriksson is one of the most underrated players on the Boston Bruins, and it would be madness to let him leave. The Swedish forward is currently second in scoring on the B's halfway through the season, but it's not just points that put King Loui squarely among the players Don Sweeney needs to make sure is in a black-and-gold jersey next season. It's so much more than...
Stanley Cup of Chowder Jan 16, 2016


LOUD NOISES Loui Eriksson is an amazing forward. There's an argument to be made that he's been our best player this season. He's brought it at even strength, on the PK, and on the PP with a consistency you can't say any other Bruins forward has had. He's on pace for 30 goals and 70 points, which would be the most successful season by a Bruin offensively since Marc Savard in 2008-09. And that's why he should be traded. Look, I don't like it. I love Loui. I love yelling Hinga Dinga Durgen whenever The Kingsman scores. But it's just the best way to manage this asset. Many people have this idea...

Mid-Season Report Cards: Forwards

Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and Loui Eriksson are all fantastic. Patrice Bergeron: A+++ (42 GP, 15-23-38, +5, 24 PIM) Patrice Bergeron is the best player in the NHL and should be in the discussion for the Hart. He’s still dominating the possession game while playing against insane competition. He’s still one of the best PKers in the league. Only difference is this year, he’s added another dimension to his game on the PP. Among players with over 100 minutes on the PP, only two get points at a faster rate than Bergeron. One is Patrick Kane and the other gets to pass to Alex...

Public Skate: 3rd Period - Bruins 2 Flyers 1

Two in two! Bruins score twice in the middle period to take the lead. Kevan Miller has a shot at a Gordie Howe hat trick. Which, if complete, would be henceforth known as the "Kevan, How?" hat trick. Max Talbot got the assist on what was honestly a beautiful feed and finish in the offense zone from the depth squad. The Bruins are also 1-for-1 on the powerplay, with Ryan Spooner and Loui Eriksson capitalizing to put the Bruins on top for the first time this game. Loui Eriksson now has 8 powerplay goals on the year, good for 5th in the league with about six other guys including Patrice...
